Review: Turkish Airlines’ Lounge – Washington Dulles

I hurried off the airplane and took a five minute (brisk) walk to the train. After about 10 more minutes, I arrived at Terminal B. From there, it was a few minute walk to the Turkish Lounge.

The first thing that I noticed at the entrance was the decor.

The reception desk was right past the entrance. The lounge is part of the Priority Pass network. I have access through my American Express Platinum Card. You could purchase a day pass for $45.

After a quick scan of Priority Pass card through the mobile app, I entered the lounge. They were still in the Christmas spirit.

The lounge was small but did not feel cramped. The layout was a U shape.

The main area consisted of a seating area…

I decided to walk to the bar side of the lounge. There was also a view of a Turkish Airlines A330 going to Istanbul on the left side.

The showers, toilets, and prayer room were on the right.

The bar area was straight ahead.

It was smaller than the main area. There was bar top seating and a smaller seating area. The wall behind the smaller seating area had water running down it.

There was a good selection of wine, spirits, and beer.

The only issue that I had was that the WiFi did not work.

Final Word

The Priority Pass Lounge network continues to impress me. The Turkish Lounge is a great alternative to any other lounge.
